NEW ADDITIONS By Mark Bacheldor, PGA Internship Coordinator It is exciting and humbling to be back here with the PGA Golf Management Program, now on the other side of the coin as part of the Program Team. My goal is to provide the students with a platform for experience in the industry while offering them real-world advice from my background in the industry. I will continue to identify great opportunities for students to not only have a name on their resume, but to truly learn from dedicated PGA Golf Professionals. I look forward to visiting your facility and learning more about your internship opportunities for the students here at UCCS. Please feel free to reach out to me for finding the perfect students for your operation.
